When Gary Lineker and Danielle Bux insisted they would remain friends following the announcement they had split, many thought it was just an empty promise that many celebrities include in a statement about their break-up.

However, the pair have proved they are different to many other former couples, by taking a sun-drenched holiday together, keeping their pact to remain friends.

Danielle shared a picture of her and Gary with a group of pals, including Richard Bacon, in LA, alongside the caption: “F.R.I.E.N.D.S.”

Garry then commented, writing: “Dinner? Too soon?”

The couple announced their divorce was going through on 13 January, which brought their six year marriage to an end.

Reports claimed that the pair decided to go their separate ways because while Danielle wanted a bigger family, the sports presenter felt he was too old to have more kids.

Addressing the reports, Gary wrote on Twitter: “We remain very close and the greatest of friends,” while Danielle added: “We will remain the best of friends.”

Gary and Danielle announced their divorce earlier this month

It later emerged that the pair had been living separately for a while, when Piers Morgan revealed that Gary told him that his marriage was over, back in the summer.

"For the outside world, this has come as a bit of a shock, as there hadn’t been any warning that what seemed like a very happy marriage was in fact on the rocks,” he told The Sun.

“It’s been an open secret for quite a while.”

Earlier this month, Gary blasted claims that his family were "overjoyed" that he had divorced the Welsh underwear model and actress.

The 55-year-old presenter was forced to rubbish claims in a tabloid newspaper that his family were “glad to see the back” of Danielle, following the couple’s divorce.

Gary hit out at the story on Twitter, branding the claims “a complete fabrication” and “utter nonsense”.
